What better way to enjoy a Nebraska state park on a beautiful day than to get in free. Saturday was Free Fishing and Park Entry Day at all state parks.

Many young anglers were out trying to catch fish at Mahoney State Park. Game and Parks employees handed out fishing gear to children if they needed it. Staff said it's important to give kids the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors.

“For a lot of kids they don't get this outdoor experience, so it's great to get them interested in different things that they might not otherwise get the chance to see,” said Mahoney’s Austin Barnes.
